Reader Comments From 2009 Voting

Best "Best Of" Publication
Asking people to vote twice is asking a lot!
— Kevin Suto

Best Oakland Event Ever!
Uptown Unveiled
We so badly need more actual Oakland get-togethers like this one. Great entertainment, excellent music, and a crowd that only Oakland could produce — people of all stripes — racial, economic, stylistic (and I do mean stylistic!). I hella love this town sometimes. — Sal Bednarz

Best Rockin' Religious Service
Temple Beth Abraham
— Susan Shub

Best Weekly Newspaper
The East Bay Express
— Devin Leaf

Most Incongruous Juxtaposition in Your Poll
Dive bar and baby yoga: How many people voted in both categories?
As always, the categories provide much entertainment as I try to imagine your ideal respondent; this year strikes me as especially diffuse, as the categories seem more than usual all over the map, both narrow and at times self-contradictory: anyone who votes in all 136 categories (or 120+) should get an honorable mention and psychiatric help. — Mary McGarry

EB Express
— Chris

Youth Organization
The Oakland Youth Chorus
They have been teaching music to kids in Oakland for the past thirty years and not getting any press! Latoya London and Goapele came out of there! — Rhonda Crane
